Speadsheet app will face Excel in showdownThe developers of word processor and speadsheet package Fireworkz are said to be working hard on a Microsoft Windows port of the software.
The latest RISC OS version of Fireworkz, pictured, is dated November 2002, yet the recent Windows port is dated June 2006. However, it's understood developments for the Windows version will make their way back into a future RISC OS release.
Gerald Fitton of programmers Abacus Training said: "Yes, we are looking at improvements for the RISC OS version, but at the moment we are concentrating our efforts on putting those improvements into a recently released 32 bit Fireworkz for Windows.
"Both Fireworkz32 for RISC OS and Fireworkz 32 for Windows use the same source code so, once we have the feedback from the Windows version, we will upgrade the RISC OS version."
A free demonstration version of Fireworkz for our platform is available for download.
